About Blake


Blake Zucker, age 26, began his artistic journey at age 5…2 1/2 years after being diagnosed with autism. He did not have the words to express his inner self and boundless creativity, so he chose to communicate through art.

Blake’s self-expression grew through art-making, and he developed an enduring passion for ceramic pottery. This emerging artist has discovered his purpose of creating beautiful & functional art for people to enjoy.

He began exhibiting his art at age 7.  Blake’s artworks have been featured in galleries and shops in New York City, Detroit, and Ann Arbor. Blake has always been inspired by the beauty of nature,  reflected in many of his works.

Now a young man,  Blake Zucker exemplifies how creativity, persistence and compassion can break boundaries and expectations.  He is currently pursuing a fine arts degree at College for Creative Studies in Detroit.

As an artist with Autism and synesthesia, I feel colors as I work.

My ideas are best expressed creatively through pottery. The responsive nature of clay interests me. It is malleable and forgiving, and thus pottery is naturally rich in metaphor and emotion.

I’m fascinated with exploring techniques to reveal the earthly organic textures within the clay and glazes.
